Institute of Virology
The Institute of Virology at the University of Marburg is engaged in the research of viral infections, which are mainly characterized by the pathogen exchange between animals and humans. The Institute has one of the only two high-security laboratories in the Federal Republic of Germany to carry out work on dangerous viruses. Thus, there is a university competence center in Marburg, which is a unique selling proposition in diagnostics and research of highly infectious diseases both nationally and internationally. In addition to the tasks in teaching, the institute carries out virus diagnostic examinations for the University Hospital Gießen and Marburg (UKGM) and external consignors.
